Software Development Engineer at Amazon.com

Non-exhaustive list of my favorite languages:

  • C, C++, x86 ASM
  • C#, Java, .NET CIL/MSIL

Experience in compiler development, OS kernel memory management, web applications, web crawlers, data mining, 3D raytracing, and data compression algorithm design.

Oh yes, and an obsessive-compulsive reader of Jeff Atwood's blog. I have fifteen different articles open as I type this.

"I want my ER doctor to understand anatomy, even if all she has to do is put the computerized defibrillator nodes on my chest and push the big red button, and I want programmers to know programming down to the CPU level, even if Ruby on Rails does read your mind and build a complete Web 2.0 social collaborative networking site for you with three clicks of the mouse." -- Joel Spolsky

comment Change in neuralyzer color in MIB films
@TylerShads - In that case, wouldn't they have known about the watch? Why the hidden key? Would they really decommission K at the end of the first film without ascertaining the location of the trigger for such a massive neuralyzer? If not, that whole subplot is pointless. I still say it seems like his secret.

Citizen or not, he was genocidal. Seeing him go free seems akin to just letting Hitler go free, had he been captured after the war.
